Supplier

A supplier is a person or an organization that provides products or services. Suppliers can be either internal or external to an organization. Internal suppliers provide products or services to people within their own organization while external suppliers provide products or services to other organizations.

Examples of suppliers include organizations and people who produce, distribute, or market products, provide services, or publish information. While ISO still includes a definition for this term, the new ISO 9001 2015 standard no longer actually uses it. It prefers, instead, to use the term external provider.
